Hey I'm currently using the Titan theme for my website and I want each category to display each FULL posts for that particular category, but with my theme Titan this is not a option. I only get links for my categories. I don't know what pages and code to edit to change this. Right now I only get this when you click on a category.


A temporary fix for me has been to create pages and use the [[ post # ]] code in each individual page to display what I want on each page.

Hope you can help so I can just use my categories and they automatically update on each category with full posts instead of just links. Thank you!

Look in your theme's folder for a file called "category.php". Open it then look for something like this:

<span><a href="<?php the_permalink();?>"><?php the_title();?></a></span>

Place this right below it:

<p><?php the_excerpt();?></p>

That will display an excerpt of each post below the title.

Small problem. No such file in my TITAN theme directory exists for category.php , but the theme I'm not using TWENTYTEN does show such a file. WTF? lol – Christopher Bowman Jan 17 '11 at 7:18
So I have no file category.php to edit according to my ftp. Which is odd and don't see how I wouldn't. – Christopher Bowman Jan 17 '11 at 7:22
it's perfectly fine not to have a category.php. Try adding it to either index.php or archive.php, or perhaps archives.php. – Pippin Jan 17 '11 at 16:43
Thank you I wanted the full post, but I just replaced excerpt with content (Only 3 months wordpress experience here so just learning everything!). It was in archive.php .. This helped me so much you dun know! – Christopher Bowman Jan 17 '11 at 18:55
Excellent! Keep at it. – Pippin Jan 17 '11 at 20:50
